Cinco de Bye-o at Superfish – May 5-7
It’s been a storied four years for what started as the Little Miss Mexico pop-up, and it’s finally time for The Happy Motel and The Social Creative crew to say goodbye to the site as it currently exists. It wouldn’t be a proper Superfish send-off without a three-day Cinco de Mayo party, featuring elotes (Mexican-style corn on the cob), tacos, paella, prosecco and margaritas. There’s also a Super Send-Off day party on Sunday with DJs spinning tunes and a pig on a spit. For more information, see the event page.
